A NEW TOW "TRUCK" FROM JAPAN

I thought this was a joke...... nope it's the real deal. Probably not a good idea to go through the mountains with a car in tow.

Re: A NEW TOW "TRUCK" FROM JAPAN

and you cannot tow an AWD vehicle with this setup. Otherwise a good idea in a country where cars are smaller.

Yep, those have been around for a few years. Interesting piece of engineering for sure!
